How regulation is pushing for science-based climate metrics

 

With an increasing amount of political and regulatory pressure for accurate climate-related disclosures, corporations and financial actors are likely to find themselves in a conundrum derived from effectively generating and disclosing required information. Disclosing risks, opportunities and specific contributions of climate change to an corporations and financial actors might prove challenging at the initial stages due to the level of complexity required to understand how climate will affect a corporation, assets and investments. right. based on science proposes disclosing climate-related information with the use of science-based climate metrics, specifically using the X-Degree Compatibility ("XDC") as the main source of information.

 

We will explore:

  • Political and regulatory context justifying the requirement for precise understanding and disclosure of climate related factors.
  • How the XDC can provide sound information to fulfill such requirement.
  • What types of legal consequences/questions are likely to arise due to basing decisions on models and Scenarios.

In our next webinar on 24 May 2018 at 3pm CET we will have a deep look into these questions. #ClimateChangeLiability

Introduction to the XDC, a science-based climate metric.

 

A company´s specific contribution to manmade climate change had not been quantified up to now. right. based on science has developed a science-based climate metric that quantifies this contribution in a precise manner: a company´s X-Degree Compatibility ("XDC") measures the temperature increase the world would face by 2050, should all companies be as emission intensive as the company at hand, given the same economic output. The XDC allows a company to:

  • Compare to relevant benchmarks, e.g. the 2 ° C target, the 1.5 ° C target or sector specific XDC averages
  • Set and manage a science-based emissions target (as any target temperature in any target year)
  • Test whether an investment supports the science-based emissions target established for a specific company

In our next webinar on 23.03.2018 at 6pm CET we will introduce the XDC with its different use cases, we will clarify the link with Science Based Targets and provide a first insight into the "XDC webApplication". #XDC

 

 

"Climate-related legal risk management: The merits of science-based sustainability data"

 

Since climate change is affecting society at different levels, companies are starting to ask how to incorporate this reality into their performance. We explored the following points in order to determine an appropriate course of action towards considering and incorporating risks from a legal perspective:

  • Main climate-related legal risks
  • Liability and determination of responsibility
  • Explore science-based sustainability metrics as effective tool for managing such risks

Comments and questions were discussed at the end. right.now is the webinar series of right. based on science. The set of slides is available on Slideshare. #ClimateChangeLiability
